Review: Tacos for Two by Betsy St. Amant

Tacos for Two was a fun and romantic story that definitely tied in aspects of You’ve Got Mail into the storyline. I loved that the two main characters, Jude and Rory, were both fans of the movie and began tucking favorite lines into their dating chats before they knew each other’s identities. The book has many aspects in common with the movie, making it especially fun for fans of the movie, like me. Yet the book is definitely its own creation, with a flavor all its own. I really enjoyed the food truck aspect of it all.

Poor Jude, who had such a controlling and conniving father that he had to take such drastic measures to try to get out from under his thumb. His father’s reach throughout the small town was frustrating, but I really enjoyed watching how everything eventually played out. I really liked the main characters, but the story was also peppered with wonderful side characters. And I loved the epilogue!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Rory Perez, a food truck owner who can’t cook, is struggling to keep the business she inherited from her aunt out of the red–and an upcoming contest during Modest’s annual food truck festival seems the best way to do it. The prize money could finally give her a solid financial footing and keep her cousin with special needs paid up at her beloved assisted living home. Then maybe Rory will have enough time to meet the man she’s been talking to via an anonymous online dating site.

Jude Strong is tired of being a puppet at his manipulative father’s law firm, and the food truck festival seems like the perfect opportunity to dive into his passion for cooking and finally call his life his own. But if he loses the contest, he’s back at the law firm for good. Failure is not an option.

Complications arise when Rory’s chef gets mono and she realizes she has to cook after all. Then Jude discovers that his stiffest competition is the same woman he’s been falling for online the past month.

Will these unlikely chefs sacrifice it all for the sake of love? Or will there only ever be tacos for one?
